ASTROLOGER

I am a certified practicing Evolutionary Astrologer and have been studying astrology for almost 30 years. I studied under Maurice Fernandez for four years and passed Gemini Brett’s Astronomy for Astrologers course at the top of the class.

I was introduced to astrology and metaphysics while poring over 19th and 20th century books at Bucknell University Library in my hometown of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania in 1991-92. I furthered my study of astrology and metaphysics while living in Ithaca, New York, from 1994-1996, spending countless hours in the Uris and Olin libraries on the campus of Cornell University. During this period, I had the honor of witnessing comet Shoemaker Levy-9 collide with Jupiter in the company of Carl Sagan’s assistant professor in 1995.

After many years of on-and-off study, I was introduced to Maurice Fernandez and subsequently began his professional course, Astrology and the Evolution of Consciousness, in 2014. Having graduated in 2017, I have been a practicing astrologer ever since, helping people understand, navigate, and manifest the potentials inherent in their natal chart. Additionally, recognizing the intrinsic value of astronomy in relation to astrology, I studied under Gemini Brett in 2020 and passed his Astronomy for Astrologers course at the top of the class.

I have also been on the board of the Organization for Professional Astrology (OPA) since 2017 as Internal Programs Director, helping to serve the international astrology community.

EDITOR

I have been a meticulous editor since 2006, editing many articles and books of astrology, poetry, fiction, and interviews.

I opened a bookstore/gallery in 2006 and also started the arts & literary magazine Omphalos the same year. This led to the formation of Nine Point Publishing and my single-handedly editing, designing, and publishing 13 issues of the magazine, 10 books of poetry, a book-length interview, and a biographical fiction. These included the likes of Robert Hunter (Grateful Dead lyricist), Stanley Mouse, John Cage, Jerome Rothenberg, William Heyen, Robert Gibbons, and Jack Matthews.

I live in rural Maine with my wife, Angelina, and two children. We homestead on 11 acres of land and forest, hosting retreats, gatherings, workshops, and weddings.​
